Maternity Photography - Fall Session with Red Mirror Photography

Photography has always been part of my life. Growing up, my parents walls were jammed with  photos. From their youth, of my great grandparents, grandparents and me! It was a story of their life, my history and my childhood. I didn’t realize it then, but it sparked a lifelong love of photography. It wasn't until an unexpected move from London to Seattle, that I finally got the opportunity to pursue my passion as a maternity and family photographer.

Almost as soon as I arrived in Seattle, I completely fell in love with the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. As a result, it has driven me to incorporate the natural environment in all of my work. I am always exploring new locations and Seattle Washington Arboretum is a real gem amongst the urban city.

I like every session to be a unique and creative process between myself and my client.This session was with a Mama who was expecting her second child and felt she had struggled to find time for this pregnancy. With this in mind, my aim was to try and capture her connection with her baby, whilst empathizing with her feelings of splitting her focus between the pregnancy and her toddler.

When possible I like to use the golden hour of sunset for my sessions to capture the gorgeous warm light and it worked perfectly with the colors all around the Arboretum. I created the ethereal warm light effects using the LensBaby Velvet 55 lens, a real favorite for my maternity sessions
